Don't Quit..

When things go wrong as they sometimes will;
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill;
When the funds are low, and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but have to sigh;
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but do not quit.

Success is failure turned inside out;
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you can never tell how close you are
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit-
It's when things go wrong that you must not quit.


"Don't Quit,"  Author Unknown

Wishing you well,
Gem :-)

This is a lovely poem - I like the idea of resting rather than quitting.  Thank you for stopping by my journal and your comments.  I've put you on alert.  I read your sidebar and believe I will find your journal interesting as I am prone myself to fall into deep depressions.  I've not been diagnosed with bi-polar.

Oh, I remember this one.  An old friend of mine from the 80's LOVED it and had it all over.
Thanks!!

Again -- I love quotes like this, but can never make them work as they were intended.  Sometimes I don't bother trying...because I get lazy!  ;)
